At War with Hemingway: The "Enthrallment" of Combat
Examines Hemingway’s infusion of fictional techniques (e.g. imagery, first-person point of view, and narrative arc) in his war reporting from the Greco-Turkish War through World War II. McFarland contends that Hemingway’s unwillingness to turn out “objective” articles in favor of creative nonfiction in his coverage of serious news stories fulfilled the expectations of both his editors and readers who appreciated his style and dramatic edge. Particularly attends to Hemingway’s and Martha Gellhorn’s reporting for Collier’s in 1944.
